    PG, Detroit Pistons

    Brandon Knight battled a few injuries in 2019-20 and finished the campaign averaging 7.3 points and 1.8 triples in 18.5 mpg.

    Knight also shot .353 from the field and an ugly (and out of character) .588 from the charity stripe, undoing what good he may have done for deep-league GMs. Knight hit the injury report with hamstring and ankle issues, but it was left knee soreness that kept him out for 13 games beginning in late January. If he can find an opportunity with large volume he may be a deep-league option for points and threes, but he shouldn't be on many draft lists next year after posting top-335/390 value this season.

    SG, Detroit Pistons

    Bruce Brown will not suit up against the Sixers on Wednesday as he deals with a sprained right ankle.

    With Brown sidelined, look for Brandon Knight to slide into the starting lineup and run the offense. Brown's next opportunity to play will be on Saturday against the Sixers.

    Bruce Brown (right ankle sprain) is being listed as questionable for Wednesday's matchup with the Sixers.

    Brown was able to play in both games over the weekend but apparently picked up an ankle injury along the way. He'll likely continue to start at one of the guard spots to close out the year, but if he is unable to go, Brandon Knight, Svi Mykhailuk, Langston Galloway and Tony Snell would pick up extra minutes and ballhandling responsibility.

    Coach Dwane Casey said that Brandon Knight (right hamstring strain) is "good to go" for Wednesday's game against the Sixers.

    Knight, who missed Sunday's game, is likely to re-enter the starting lineup at PG. Knight was seeing a hefty workload prior to the missed game, but the Pistons have gotten back Bruce Brown Jr. and Jordan McRae has a few games under his belt, so we may see the ballhandling responsibilities be dispersed more. Nevertheless, Knight should still see a good amount of minutes and carry value until Derrick Rose and Luke Kennard can get back on the court.

    Brandon Knight (right hamstring strain) will suit up on Sunday but play under a minutes restriction.

    Interestingly, Dwane Casey cited a sore knee for the restriction, and not the hamstring issue that put Knight on the injury report. Knight has been playing well as the last PG standing in Detroit, and can be viewed as a solid pickup for anyone in need of points and threes.

    Brandon Knight (right hamstring strain) is questionable vs. the Knicks on Sunday.

    Knight has been a top-95 guy over the past two weeks and could do some damage against a bad Knicks team. This is the best season that he's had in years and is worth owning as or right now.

    PG, Detroit Pistons

    Brandon Knight scored 13 points on 3-of-9 shooting with four rebounds, three assists and three 3-pointers in 29 minutes on Saturday.

    Knight was listed probable with a quad injury but he played through the same injury on Wednesday too. Knight was a top-100 player in the five games prior to Saturday and has a short-term boost while Bruce Brown Jr. (knee) ramps up his minutes since returning from his injury. Knight is trending down but is a short-term option for points, threes and assists. Beware the Pistons only play twice next week.

    Brandon Knight (quad) is starting again for the Pistons on Saturday.

    Knight has seen a late-season resurgence and his starting gig has allowed him to be a solid contributor of points, threes and assorted peripherals.

    Brandon Knight (quad) is probable to take on the Jazz on Saturday.

    It sounds like Knight will be able to play, although his value will take a hit with the return of Bruce Brown Jr. Knight sill has some appeal as he did receive 38 minutes on Wednesday. It'd be surprising to see him keep up this mid-round production, but late-round consideration for standard leagues is still feasible if he receives a 30-minute role for the thin Pistons.

    Brandon Knight (quad) dished out seven assists on Wednesday, adding 18 points (6-of-15 from the floor) with two rebounds and two steals in 38 minutes.

    Knight got the start with Derrick Rose (ankle) and Bruce Brown (knee) sidelined and tallied seven assists for his second straight game. He's scored at least 14 points in five straight games and is worth streaming for points, threes and assists until Rose and Brown return.

    Brandon Knight (right quad strain) has been upgraded to available ahead of Wednesday’s tilt vs. the Thunder.

    Knight should continue to see an increased role with Derrick Rose and Bruce Brown sidelined. He has hit 17 three-pointers in the last four games and can be streamed as a three-point specialist for now.

    Bruce Brown Jr. (left knee contusion) has been ruled out ahead of Wednesday’s matchup vs. the Thunder.

    Brown will miss his fourth consecutive game which is unfortunate as he appeared to have a clear path to 30-plus minutes a night. Brandon Knight, who is questionable, should continue to see extended run with Brown and Derrick Rose sidelined.

    Brandon Knight (right quad strain) is being listed as questionable for Wednesday's game against the Thunder.

    Knight practiced on Tuesday and looked likely to suit up. With Derrick Rose out and Bruce Brown Jr. questionable, Knight is going to once again be in line for a substantial role should he be able to suit up.

    Brandon Knight scored 16 points with seven dimes in a 106-100 loss to the Kings on Sunday.

    Knight shot 5-of-12 from the field and 5-of-10 from beyond the arc. He will be a great source of points, triples and assists for deeper formats for the remainder of the season.

    Brandon Knight connected on 7-of-14 from the field on Friday, ending with 19 points, four assists, a steal and five triples against the Suns.

    Knight played 25 minutes tonight and has now seen 20-plus in his last three games, putting him on the map in deeper leagues if you need points and threes. Don't expect much more than that but he's viable in certain builds.
